Blooms!!!

I love the big old fashioned roses, and also the huge floppy peonies, and have been having a go at trying to re-create them in felt.
I've made mine from five layers of  marino wool in different shades and glitzy fibres, felted together. So relaxing to do!!  I'm quite pleased with the effect, and it is a lot bigger than the original flowers I made which gives me more scope to decorate it, as I have done with a few crystals.

Off to make my own bouquet now lol.  Elizabeth xxx
